The American Mission Hospital is a private not-for-profit hospital located in Manama, Bahrain. It has been serving the community of Bahrain, for about 120 years.

Established in 1903 as the Mason Memorial Hospital, it was the first modern hospital in Bahrain, and possibly, along the entire southern gulf region of Arabia. 

Today, the hospital offers round-the-clock specialist medical & dental services from its main branch in Manama, and also from three satellite clinics located at Saar, Amwaj Islands and Riffa. The Manama and Saar branches are open 24x7.

In A’Ali, a new $66 million, King Hamad American Mission Hospital is being built, and is scheduled to be inaugurated in 2022. AMH will then be serving Bahrain from FIVE locations.


In 2017, the hospital in Manama and its satellite branches in Saar and Amwaj Islands have been awarded Diamond status – the highest level of accreditation given to hospitals by the National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) of Bahrain. 

Ten years earlier, in 2007, AMH had become the first hospital in the Kingdom of Bahrain to have achieved accreditation through ACHS International (ACHSI), Australia's leading health care accreditation agency, which is recognised by the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua), for both, its standards and its accreditations programs. And that status was reaffirmed in 2010. 

The hospital currently has the certifications of OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 9001:2015 for the Provision of In-patient and Out-patient Medical Services including Training, Dental, Diagnostic and Pharmacy Services from Bureau Veritas, UK.


AMH is among the first hospitals in Bahrain to focus on wellness and preventative health, instead of on illness alone. The Riffa clinic, which opened in 2018, has a Wellness Center, with a large portion of its facility allocated to health and fitness training. The trainers provide wellness advice, with health and fitness packages, that benefit our patients and members. The place has a well-equipped gym, a large indoor swimming pool, and other facilities.

In A’Ali too, a new wellness center, with the latest state of the art equipment and facilities is also being built at the King Hamad American Mission Hospital that is scheduled to open in 2022.

The recent tie-up with Soza Health, a health tech company from UK, from October 2020, shows AMH’s willingness and readiness to promote preventative health strategies and lifestyle changes, in Bahrain.

This tie-up of AMH, with Soza health UK and Dhu3, Bahrain, will facilitate the conducting of health assessments backed by years of medical research, so that individuals can easily know where they stand on the wellness spectrum.

The tie-up will also facilitate ‘Corporate Wellness Programs’ for companies interested in giving their staff a priority in healthcare and lifestyle improvements.
